'Destroy All Humans! 2' (PS2/Xbox) Gets Hollywood Voiceover

by Rainier on Sept. 6, 2006 @ 4:33 a.m. PDT

Destroy All Humans! 2 takes the irreverent sci-fi action gaming experience into the swinging '60s with all-new game features, expanded open-world gameplay and co-op multiplayer.

Anthony Head voices Ponsonby, a well coiffed human and head of MI5, who is introduced to help the lead aliens, Crypto and POX, fight against the KGB. However, as the game progresses, Ponsonby is not necessarily who he appears to be. With the unexpected twists and turns, it appears that no human can be trusted. To succeed, players should remember to live by the motto, “Make War Not Love.”

“When we were presented with the character Ponsonby, we needed a voice that created an extra dimension and enhanced his upper-class Englishness but hinted at a touch of deceit. Anthony Head has a wealth of acting experience and was the obvious choice. He brought Ponsonby alive in a very unique way,” commented Richard Williams, director of marketing, THQ (UK).

Destroy All Humans! 2 marks the return of the hugely popular alien-centric game whose predecessor secured a top-three all formats chart position in the summer of 2005. Set in 1960s, and boasting five new locations, our favourite destruction-loving alien returns to wreak even more havoc on planet earth in Destroy All Humans! 2.

Anthony Head is an established English actor with a long line of film, television and stage credits to his name. Anthony was once famed for the popular ‘Nescafe Gold Blend’ advertisements which ran in the 1980s. Since then, he has gone on to play lead roles in TV dramas in the UK and US. Recent characters include Rupert Giles in the successful Buffy the Vampire Slayer series and in the UK he has played Chester Grant in Monarch of the Glen and the straight-laced Prime Minister in Little Britain.
